This is a great small hotel (I think 11 rooms), situated about 3 minutes walk from the Sant Angelo stop on the Grand Canal - serviced by Alilaguna boat (the Orange line) direct from airport. That journey takes about 1 hour. Its just off the main East-West path south of the Grand Canal - so its nice and quiet, but takes literally a few minutes to get somewhere busy. Rialto bridge and San Marco are close by - its genuinely in the middle of Venice perfect to go in any direction.
There aren't many rooms - but it does have a small lift, which might be helpful for some people. We stayed in room 205 - which was plenty big enough. The bed is large and comfortable, with large windows and good curtains if you want to block out the bright morning sunshine!!. There isn't much of a view but then, you aren't in Venice to sit in the room.
The bathroom is fine, although for some reason there is no shower curtain but the floor doesn't really get wet if you are a bit careful. My only gripe is that the room was pretty dusty. The bed linen was fine, and the bathroom too, towels changed no problem - but the cups, kettle and sideboard were all pretty dusty. I think if you used those items they would get cleaned..... In my mind it just needs a good spring clean. Other than that, it can't be faulted.
Breakfast is served 7:30-10:00 on the ground floor. Its a nice breakfast room, with an outdoor area when its sunny. There is a selection of fruit, and the usual breads and cereals. Free wifi is available and worked ok in the room - you can ask for more than one code, if you have more than 1 item needing connection. The staff are friendly and helpful with any requests you might have. It was possible to leave luggage early (before checking in time) and after check out (for a late flight). There are many restaurants nearby.
If I visited Venice again, I would certainly consider this hotel again.
